was wondering how the 6" lift holds up... and how often are there axle troubles?
Yes sir I do agree. I trail ride mine alot, but it is a Catvos, NOT a Gorilla.... I can trail ride slow (less than 10mph) all day with out any probs, but faster than that and I gotta have something to cool it down once in a while. I have had zero axle trouble since May of 2010 when I installed the lift and just tore my 2nd boot since then on this past Saturday....almost a year of hard riding and only 2 boots....I dont think thats a bad price to pay. I do have a bud with the 6" gorilla and I know he wont hook up to anybody to pull on them because he said he's almost gauranteed to break something. I also know that he's got some pretty extreme axle angles up front.....mine doesnt. My rear angles are steep because the rear end has a 2" stretch/rake to the back of the bike but this hasnt givin me any issues either. If I had it to do all over again, I'd still get a lift this size, but I'd consider the High Lifter 7", Get-A-Grip 4" (its nearly as tall as mine, just doesnt sit as wide), or the Twisted 5". I like the Catvos....but I coulda got the same thing out of one of those lifts for less money. Only thing about Catvos is that they claim they give a lifetime warranty on their product....we'll see about that when the time comes lol. Any other questions feel free to ask.well my experience that a gorilla 6 inch lift for a brute is garbage.. a 6 inch can be trail rode but need to watch speed and be around some water to cool the boots ask filthyredneck he has a 6 inch catvos .. he would be a good person to ask.. but if it was me i would stay away from the gorilla .. they eat boots up on any of there 6 inch lifts.. and the tires lean when turning dunno why they do but they do.. hope that helps
